Let's say I have one Azure subscription and 2 Azure instances: Dev-instance.database.windows.net for developer testing, and Prod-instance.windows.net for production work. I want to create a new database named 'Employee'on both instances. Can I name the database the same on both instances, or do the database names have to be unique since I only have one subscription?
